Financial aid makes up the difference between what college costs and what you can afford to pay. We all want to save money, and Monroe will help you do just that. Whether it’s through special grants, loans, or credits for prior learning, our Loan Management department will guide you through the process for the entirety of your time with us. They’re a valuable resource for you and your family as you pursue a new career and a healthy financial future.
Financial Aid means different things to different people and can be very confusing for most. Financial Aid starts with the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Once you complete that information, you'll actually get to talk to a personal financial aid advisor that will review all the information and see what options they can put together just for you. One is through a program that we have Corporate Partners. Another way is with our Prior Learning Assessment. Prior Learning Assessment allows you to actually take your experience and convert it into credits, which in turn allows you to graduate sooner and save money. Another way is transfer credits. By transferring credits from your other colleges, we have a lot of flexible options to do that, again, you get to lower your course loads, you get to graduate sooner, again, less of an out of pocket expense. Monroe College actually has a loan management department, which is a resource for life for our students. They're there to guide you along the way to answer any questions. They're a great resource. It's always here for you even after you graduate Monroe College.
